Animal Rights Intimidation Continues With Scarce Condemnation From “Mainstream” Liberationists


Here is another example of the growing radicalism that is sweeping the animal rights/liberation movement. Theft, threats of violence, intimidation--all to thwart medical progress in the name of saving the animals. What I find telling is this: Whenever I post an article such as this, the e-mail comes pouring in about how I am demonizing a peaceful movement. But when I ask my correspondents to condemn these tactics, they almost never will.

The only people who can reach the violent radicals are co-believers. But they are sitting on their hands. It seems to me that makes them complicit in the escalating criminality and terrorist threats.
